      Hey guys great videos... Can you do one about FORMULA 1 Team Williams? It really interests me since it's a multi championship winning weam from the 80's and 90's and now it's really struggling, trailing more than a second behind the second to last team in every session for 2 year now.

      If you could i'd really thank you!

    Gruden only won that super bowl because of 2 reasons, 1. The team he was gifted and 2. He played his former team that ran the same playbook as they did with Gruden. He's the worst coach in the nfl

      Keyshawn Johnson was the most overrated receiver in the history of football at any level. Riduculous that he went #1 overall.

        That was Dungys' ring. Gruden got put into the 100% perfect situation. Like Seifert and Switzer. Those teams really didnt need a coach. Dungy got his revenge though😂😂

            Gruden was OVERRATED, the Bucs were OVERRATED. Yes Sapp and Brooks were Badass's, however if it wasn't for the Raiders running the same plays like 1 year before when Gruden was coaching, the Raiders would have beaten the Bucs. The Raiders at the time were very good on both sides of the ball. The Bucs were only good on the defense. Gruden never made a offense through the entire time he was in Tampa bay. The defense is what kept them winning just like 2000 Ravens. Keyshawn was extremely overrated, Brad Johnson was a solid starter but 8 wouldn't want him with 2 min left in the game. Who was their play maker WR or RB. That's what always cracks me up when people say how good Jon Gruden was as a coach. I remember it pissed me off when they were on the sidelines celebrating with the SB hats on and the 3rd quarter wasn't even over yet.

                      Us Bucs fans always look back fondly on 2002, still the greatest defense to this day. The Bucs had a legendary defense well before Gruden but Zero offense. Gruden brought some offense to the table with Dungy's defense and Superbowl champs were made. It really was Dungy's team and no coaches have done more for the Bucs than Tony Dungy and Monte Kiffin. I remember that Monday night game against the Colts, to me that game marked the official collapse of the bucs greatness and the start of a long history of blowing big leads and sucking which they do to this day.

                                            the colts and the bucs game was a BS blow, at the very end the 1st missed field goal was repeated due to a total bullshit call.

                                              After Super Bowl XXXVII I thought that Jon Gruden was the best Head Coach in the NFL. But after just the following season I changed my mind. Gruden didn't win another playoff game with Tampa Bay, and I doubt he will even get a chance to win one in Oakland.

Be interesting to see if now that he has the opportunity to make all the changes he wants if it actually works for him. At the very least it should make for an interesting season.

                                                            Historically the Bucs has been a bad team, and 2002 was an exception. They acquired Jon Gruden to get them over the hump— beating the Eagles on the road and winning the Super Bowl. Gruden has been way overrated as a coach (except that two games) and Dungy deserved credit for building that Bucs team, yet at the end of the day only championship mattered.

                                                                          Let’s be real this was dungys team. They canned him kept his system and finally got over the hump. They fell apart because they didn’t have dungy to sustain their success

                                                                          • Douglas Davis
                                                                            Douglas Davis  4 weeks back

                                                                            In a world full of "what ifs..." I would like to have seen a few things swing differently in everyone's favor.
                                                                            Beginning with Dungy never being fired. BUT...put on a bit of leash and in the off-season having he and Rich McKay look at free agents like...Keenan McCardell and Joe Jurevicious.

                                                                            I realize that offense would have operated completely different under Dungy than it did under Gruden. Still, the biggest off-season acquisitions that Gruden made were two wide receivers. Both of whom made huge contributions to the team. Jurevicious' performance throughout the playoffs was special. McCardell was the red zone target that Keyshawn Johnson wasn't capable of being. I mean, how do you lead the entire league in receptions in 2001 and among those only have one touchdown? Keyshawn was good, but he needed more talent around to compliment him. Guys like Karl Williams, Riedel Anthony, Jacques Green, even Bert Emanuel weren't going to help get a passing game going in Tampa.

                                                                            So let's say Dungy doesn't get fired and yet makes those same off season moves...possibly even retaining Warrick Dunn in the process?

                                                                            If Dungy doesn't get fired and he pays attention to offense, Gruden never leaves the Raiders.

                                                                            Each team remains relevant and meet each other in SB-37. The difference then is a much closer game, with a score of 21-17 or something. Regardless of who would've won, BOTH teams remain relevant for the next few years.

                                                                            The Bucs collapse following the SB win was bad, but the Raiders collapse after that loss has been pathetic.

When they hired Lovie Smith I started hoping they would lose some, and when they drafted Rapist Winston I decided to actually hate the team.

Rich McKay built that team, drafted Lynch, Brooks, Sapp, Barber, Alstott, etc..., no question Gruden got them over the top and they wouldn't have won a Super Bowl without that move, Tony Dungy couldn't figure out the offense, Bucs went their last 3 playoff games under Dungy, all losses without scoring a touchdown.
